Are you seeking comfort food that is healthy, quick in cooking, affordable, and has a long shelf life? Meet Food to Live’s Organic Mung Dal! Also known as Organic Moong Dal, this legume is a true staple of Indian cuisine. It’s made of mung beans that have been skinned and then split. Being yellow and round in shape, mung dal is often confused with yellow split lentils, which in turn are hulled and split green lentils. Although they may be used in many recipes interchangeably, mung dal and yellow split lentils still differ in cooking time and flavor.
Organic Split Mung Dal is highly nutritious and easier to digest compared to other legumes. It is rich in Vitamin A, B, C, and E and minerals like Iron, Calcium, and Potassium. Moreover, split mung beans are low in fat and high in fiber. Mung dal boasts a great amount of protein, which makes it perfect for vegan or vegetarian diets.
How to Use and Cook Organic Split Mung Beans
Mung dal has a slight feathery texture and mild buttery flavor, which works well for soups, stews, curries, and kitchari. Moreover, it can be milled into flour for pancakes or flatbread. Also, Organic Yellow Moong Dal is used to cook Indian dishes, based on the principles of the famous Ayurvedic diet. Among them are Moong Dal Tadka, Moong Dal Fry, Parippu Curry, and Cabbage Kootu. Of course, for that purpose, you can take canned mung dal as a second option, but remember that canned legumes usually contain preservatives, more sodium, and fewer nutrients.
